Yonkers: Tuesday 5/17 Analysis


MEET STATS: 120 - 514 / $759.30  BEST BETS: 12 - 53 / $51.40

Best Bet: FAT MANS ALLEY (5th)

Spot Play: CAPOZZO (12th)

Race 1

(3) VILLAGE BEAT moves back inside where he was a sharp second two trips ago; capable despite the 0 for 11 tries this year. (1) MC RUSTY closed strongly to land down the placing in his latest. (8) FASHION DELIGHT was flashing good speed in his Hawthorne finale and figures to be right in the thick of it.

Race 2

(5) SCOTTISH CROSS might have found a perfect spot for her to score over these trotters and has every right to take them wire to window. (3) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN did not fire in his last try but moves back to a flat mile and that could help his cause; maybe. (2) CARNEGIE needs to return to his Freehold victory three trips ago; we shall see.

Race 3

(3) IN RUNAWAY BAY N seems sharp when this gelding moved down in class last out and this could be the time he finally gets the job done against this weak group. (1) LUCKY MCTRUCKY gets class relief and that should help his chances. (7) SIR ZIGGYS Z TAM put in a mild rally for the fourth spot last out.

Race 4

(4) SURFACE TENSION's last try he was going the long mile and went in the wrong direction. Hopefully this trotter will find his best stride if given a favorable trip; playable. (2) BINGO QUEEN Mare had dull cover but did hang on for fourth money last time around. (1) CALIPARI gets serious post relief and should find these to his liking.

Race 5

(1) FAT MANS ALLEY gets another chance at glory in the series. Gelding was up on the rim at the 3/4 pole but could not get to the winner last time out; should boss these from the fence. (2) MONTANA PABLO N did have good cover but could not get past the top two in his latest.  (5) BUBBIE BOY has been game in his last two tries and is not out of this.

Race 6

(3) SHARK FANTASY Gelding was sent down the road in his last start for all the glory. With another effort the rest will have to settle for second money. (1) QUINCY had brief speed but hit the brakes at the 3/4 pole in his most recent outing. (5) INNOCENT VICTIM's last start he was game in the pocket but could not get to Shark Fantasy to lose by a neck; watch out.

Race 7

(5) TENDTOWIN was razor sharp for the victory last time out. Seems to be in good form so two straight is clearly not out of the question; playable. (3) ITS A GOOD THING 10-year-old got the job done wire to window in the series last week.  (4) CANT IT BE ME is unbeaten in the series when this 4-year-old held on for win honors recently; beware again.

Race 8

(1) BUZZEN GARLAND put in a nice try in his first attempt at the Hilltop last out. Now he moves to the fence and good to see Sears with the assignment; threat at his best. (6) CHUKKAR has showed good speed upstate and could have a say in the outcome. (5) MASTER CLASS closed strongly to nail down the show spot in his last trip.

Race 9

(8) LILYS SWAN POND has a good chance to put it all together. Trotting gelding put in a mild rally to grab fourth money last out so with a fine-timed drive from Smith he could make today a winning one. (1) COUSIN EDDIE has missed some time between races but he still is the speed of the speed; big player from the fence. (2) MR WEB PAGE moves to the 2-hole and that could help his cause; watch out.

Race 10

(2) APOSTLES CREED Makes his return to Yonkers after facing some good trotters at Pocono; capable of getting the job done with Bartlett at the controls. (3) COUGHLIN has wheeled off three straight victories and his last victory at Philly was sharp; dangerous. (5) ARRAKIS will need a better trip then in his latest; possible.

Race 11

(1) CHINES FOR ALL was quite dull at Philly last out but now he moves his trade to Yonkers and he should roll from the rail; down the road. (3) MADMAN HALL was second best in his last start and has hit the board in his last five.  (2) NORTHERN OBSESSION should appreciate the move back inside and could make some noise in deep stretch.

Race 12

(3) CAPOZZO gets serious post relief and makes his return to Yonkers where he got the job done two starts ago; ready for action. (7) HALL OF TERROR closed strongly to nail down the placing last time out. (2) BJS BEQUIA was late on the scene to grab second money in his last try.
